. americans deserve better. all of those words were taken from then senator obama's statement before he voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006. truer words cannot have been spoken today. the debt burden the president was concerned about a few years ago is still a very real threat today. congress should pass a responsible budget so we have a road map to get to our serious debt burden. no budget, no pay. >> i'm not sure i need this stool, but i'm a freshman. i'm new. i was sworn in just three weeks ago today and as a new member of the 113th congress, i know how they do things in washington, d.c.,. i know how they do things in missouri's 2nd congressional district. i'm a mother of three kids and have small business roots and all i know is that every family, every household, every business, every individual must have and pass a budget. we must live within our means. it is past time, way past time for the united states senate to pass a responsible budget that is going to put us on a path towards prosperity and is going to grow our economy and is going to create jobs and increase the standa
payments. in 2006, when speaking in opposition to increasing the debt limit, the senator obama said the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. those comments hold true today. that is why it is disappointing that the president is declining to engage in a meaningful dialogue to identify a responsible, balanced approach to reduce spending. and, reducing the deficit, which the president promised to cut in half during his first term. of course, it is tough to cut the deficit when the senate, controlled by the president's own party, will not or cannot even produce a budget. it has been four years since the democrat-controlled senate has passed a budget. that is a disgrace. i fully expect republicans and democrats will disagree about what the budget should look like, even when one party has a majority in both the senate and house, the two parties often disagree. the failure to resolve the differences is the problem. how can we even start to find common ground if senate democrats will not tell us where they stand? in the first pla
that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the statement administration policy. reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from massachusetts. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker. i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mcgovern: i'm glad the gentleman from texas agrees with harry reid. i hope he agrees with harry reid on more things in the future, but the fact of the matter is this show business before us does nothing other than postpone this debate on the debt ceiling for three months. it doesn't require a finished product. it does not require that we actually have something that amounts to a deal that goes to the president's desk. this is, you know, the house will pass their extreme budget like they always do. the senate will probably do something. and then nothing else is required. there's no requirement for a deal in order to get your pay. i mean, this is show b

to manage the senate more effectively in coming months. >> republican leader? >> mr. president, i want to start by co want to start by congratulating president obama on his inauguration. presidential inauguration to always time for the country to come together. we all feel a certain pride in the event and we are reminded of how fortunate we are to live in a nation where we have the ability to choose our leaders freely and resolve our differences in peace. inauguration day is also a time for new beginnings. a chance to learn from the mistakes and missed opportunities of the past as we reengaged and some vitally important debates about the future. too often over the past four years, apolitical consideration has trumped the need to put our country on a sound financial footing in the past two prosperity. today we recommit ourselves to face the problems head-on. i understand that the passions of an election can sometimes overshadow the governor. the presidential campaign is now behind us. it is my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to
